I started a series of bridges in My World # 8. This is the second in the series, the Main Street Bridge. This was always the best way to get across from the two parts of Kent until an impressive overpass was built. A railroad crossing can stop the traffic flow. The stone bridge consists of three arches and a section to cross the lower railroad tracks. You can see the new Kent Dam in the foreground.
There is a pier in the water under the river arch.
This is looking through the dry arch of the bridge.
This is looking through the one water arch I can reach.
The Cuyahoga River and the reason Kent has so many bridges. You can see the U-flow of the river starting in the North and flowing south through Kent before flowing West to Akron.
Norman Maclean wrote of rivers in 'A River Runs Through It'. This is to honor his writing. This is a large rock along one of the bridge arch bottoms.
As Maclean wrote 'Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters.'
In this I can see the writing the water has made in stone to tell their story.
